Imagine U productions are geared toward children and their families. Performances often include an opportunity for children to interact afterwards with the cast and receive colorful take-home programs filled with activities, art projects, fun facts and games! Past productions have included THE BALLAD OF MU LAN, WINNIE THE POOH, TOMAS AND THE LIBRARY LADY, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH (Chicago premiere), A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD, CHARLOTTE’S WEB, THE RELUCTANT DRAGON, and many more!
Theater for young audiences entertains and open minds – and it’s not just for kids.

Northwestern theater students, faculty and alumni shared weekly stories for young audiences online. More than 49 weekly episodes have been produced and more than 90 students and other artists were involved.
“It has been remarkable to see what our students have created to delight young audiences,” said Lynn Kelso, Imagine U founder and creative mentor. “We are very excited to return to continue to share these artistic gifts with our families in these challenging times.”
